Space Mountain the Movie, Ready for Takeoff



This week, we found out that Disney is getting ready to make a new movie based completely around one of our favorite rides, Space Mountain.  It is almost inconceivable that it has taken this long, but this is a bit of what we hope we see. We would love to hear what you want to see in the movie!

Roger Rabbit and the Dip



The Dip, Also Known As “Toon Acid”, is a greenish, ghastly chemical seen in Who Framed Roger Rabbit. It’s Judge Doom’s preferred method of Toon execution. According to Lieutenant Santino, it’s a mixture of turpentine, acetone, and benzene, which all of them are paint-thinners. Combined in the real world, they make up the solution hand animators used to use to remove ink from animation cells. This could be considered an inside joke, as your average audience member would not know what these ingredients made up. While relatively harmless to humans, any toon that comes in contact with it will melt instantly and is apparently the only surefire way to kill a toon (although Eddie Valiant gets most of The Toon Patrol members to laugh themselves to death). Ironic enough, Judge Doom ends up being dipped himself near the end of the film, after revealing himself to be actually a toon.

E.318 Mulan Coming to Disney Plus at a Price



In another major blow to movie theaters, Disney announced “Mulan” will forgo its planned theatrical release. Instead, the live-action remake is premiering on Disney Plus on Sept. 4 for a premium rental price.

The company believes that the release of the action epic will help drive subscribers while serving as a valuable test case to determine how much of their hard-earned cash customers are willing to part with in order to watch a movie that was originally intended to debut exclusively in cinemas.

Unlike the rest of the content available on Disney Plus, “Mulan” won’t be available directly to subscribers. Consumers in the U.S. and other territories will have to pay $29.99 to rent the movie on top of the streaming service’s monthly subscription fee of $6.99. In markets where Disney Plus isn’t available, “Mulan” will play in cinemas.
